Ground Chicken Lettuce Wraps (Recipe by Patrick Murphy)

1 pound ground turkey
8-10 bibb lettuce leave, separated, washed and dried
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoons black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon cayenne (or less depending on taste)
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 lime, sliced into 8-10 wedges (1 per lettuce cup)
1 can of black beans, drained
8-10 fresh cilantro leaves, washed and dried (for garnish and flavor)


Optional spicy cream:
½ cup reduced fat sour cream
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ cup chili powder




Cook turkey in a nonstick pan over medium heat until pink is almost gone. Add black beans. Add all of the spices. Stir until fully incorporated. When fully cooked (10 -15 minutes), remove from heat and set aside for assembly. Put bibb lettuce leaf on a plate. Spoon turkey mixture into each lettuce cup. Top with lime, cilantro leaf, or a dollop of the spicy cream sauce.
